The original 2000 census listed Troutdale with a population of 1,230, a very sharp increase from 192 in 1990. This, and the similarly anomalous figure of 30.89% African-American population, was the result of a tabulation error in which much of the population of nearby Wise County's correctional facilities were counted as Troutdale residents. census revision
